Delicious from appies to dessert

We ended up sharing everything we ordered because it was all so good and we couldn't choose. We'll go there again next time we're in Seattle.

Expect to pay about 30+ per person at this trendy vegan place. I wanted to review this place to balance out some other reviews. I went in a group of 5 lightly buzzed non vegans and we were in love with the good. The quality of our meal was amazing. We had the 'fried chicken,' portabello steaks, and a tempeh... More

Food is fine - HOWEVER: Ordered soup of the day, arrived lukewarm. Waiter brought another soup, again lukewarm. How sweet, they took it off the tab. It is FREEZING in this place ! They can surely afford to put in heating vents/pipes somewhere. It's 35 degrees outside and maybe 65 inside. I had to wear my leather coat and scarf... More

I know that says a lot, but it was one of the best meals we have ever had in a vegan restaurant! No question! We had two amazing meals, and try as we could, there was nothing to even remotely complain about! Nothing! Perfectly cooked, perfectly seasoned, and massive portions. I had to try hard to finish my Pizza, and... More

We were really excited to visit plum bistro, being vegans. We heard great things about the Mac n yease dish. When it came we both found it way too rich and not a great flavour. The presentation was lovely. We also ordered the jerk tofu and yam burger, good flavour but completely fell apart and the soup of the day,... More

We asked our hotel if it could recommend a good vegan restaruant and it suggested Plum. We weren't disappointed. This is a cool restaurant with great service and even better vegan food. We give it our highest recommendation. It is simply amazing and wonderful. On every level, for every dish, all of our expectations were exceded. This is a great... More

The space is very nice with well-chosen decor and a modern but welcoming concept. The menu has very appealing options, and the food was okay, but not great. The portions were okay, but for more than $40 for two for lunch, the delivery could be better. My husband had the veggie slam which had very nice presentation. The cheesy potatoes... More

Without doubt, this meal ranks in the top ten of my best vegan meals - ever. Being able to eat every single item on the menu is always a treat, and then to have every flavour deliver made this an exceptional experience. I've surely eaten thousands of veggie burgers in almost 20 years as a vegetarian, and I'm not a... More

Being vegan, I LOVE checking out creative vegan spots and Plum is a new favorite for me. The location is a little off the regular tourist track (a plus in my book!) and everything from the decor to the service to the AMAZING menu is awesome. First time there, I seriously couldn't decide what I wanted and ended up ordering... More

Very impressed with the wide range of interesting vegan brunch choices. Choosing just a few was quite difficult. Ordered the 'bacon' and waffles, and the grits and greens. The flavors were very bold, and definitely one of the most unique ways I've ever had grits. If you are looking for a fully vegan experience that doesn't skip on flavor, this... More
